Default rebuilt Tylorcraft w/ video

I purchased this Taylorcraft from a friend who picked it up at a swap meet a few years back. I added new servos and the graphics were done by a RCU member. I thought it looked good so posted some pics after I added the graphics. Come to find out the the seller at the swap meet had rebuilt the plane after a bad crash. I could tell there was patch work on the plane but it looked good. here is a clip of it flying last week.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbKXyFMnJa8

Very nice plane and the video was one of the best of a model plane flight I have seen. A scale takeoff down the runway would have made it perfect.
